That is not a headphone socket -- it is a line-level socket.
Ok, not being an audio person, what is the differnce between a line
level socket and a headphones socket?
Is a headphone socket for devices without build in amplifiers? and a
line level socket the opposite?
Presumably using headphones isn't the cause of the very poor sound on
the line level socket?
